Call for Papers: Workshop European Dialect Syntax (Edisyn) VIII – 11.-13. Juni 2015, Zürich

The eighth Edisyn Workshop aims at bringing together scholars working in the field of dialect syntax and syntactic microvariation. The general topic of the workshop will be

“Pathways of Syntactic Diffusion”.

We continue to welcome project presentations by new members of the Edisyn network, and we would particularly like to encourage PhD students to submit their proposals.We invite abstracts for 20 minutes talks (plus 10 min discussion). Submissions are limited to 1 single authored and 1 jointly authored abstract. Abstracts should not exceed 2 pages including figures, examples and references. Please send your abstract as an attachment (PDF format) by e-mail to the organizing committee ( To ensure a double-blind peer review process, submissions should be anonymous.
